Hello! I have been offered to buy the ss bracelet of a guy.
I bought some other things that are original, but I am completely lost in the SS.
He says he has had it for about 20 years and the former comes from a Finnish relative.
(So say it all ..)
I only got this picture and wonder if you can judge it on just this picture?
am grateful for all the answers.

Looks bad to me. Swaz isn't textbook multi pieced ribbed rayon, it looks printed(?)
Black border tape also looks bad, again, not ribbed rayon, and the stitching on the roundel looks poor. See what others say though!

We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.

20-30 years old sounds just about right - todays reproductions have reached a far higher level of sophistication .
The roundel here is 1 piece B & W woven cloth , sewn on in thick zigzag stitching ..
